Dear Rand,

Welcome to the PBS List. There was a man on the IBS list for awhile many 
years ago from Seattle named George Krassle. He dropped out and I didn't 
have any luck contacting him later. He reported to that group that he was 
growing Ferraria on a summer cycle as he was unable to grow them 
successfully with his wet cold winters otherwise. I tried to turn some of 
mine around and didn't have any luck even though he said it was quite easy 
and they started into growth when he watered them. Maybe if you started 
them from seed in the spring and they always had been grown that way it 
would work. Or maybe it depended on how they were stored.

In October I plan to have a topic of the week on the subject you have 
suggested. It was inspired by Lisa Flaum, but I wanted to wait until Mark 
Wilcox has returned from South America since he too is interested. I've 
haven't figured out a title yet, maybe Bulbs that can be grown out of their 
normal cycle?
